    Hi everyone, Ive tried to search for this but couldn't find it. SO i've been searching for some good earbuds that will control the music on the droid. and i was gandering at the headset that comes with the nexus one, and it seems to have all the controls im looking for, play, pause, fast forward, rewind. so i'm wondering, will this work with the droid? and also, how can we purchase this headset w/o buying the nexus one?!

    been looking all over the place for a headset with music controls. they will hopefully sell the headset separately, other than these i have not seen any that are similar to an iphone headset that works with the droid.

    yeah i've been looking all over too. and it seems like all possible options are really expensive and still might not work fully. so i think this is gonna be what comes closest. how can we get our hands on some? aside from begging a nexus one owner....

    I would love a headset with full controls. For the time being I am using the premium blackberry headset I had with my storm2. It will play/pause and thats about it.Sometimes it will allow me to skip tracks. Not ideal but works for the time being.

    Im using BT 3030 dog tag and it gives me full control over thephone. My wife is using the sony ericson. Whats cool about it is you can use your own ear buds. you should search for it.

    yeah there are tons of bluetooth alternatives with music control I was more interested in having a wired headset so I wouldn't have to deal with charging the thing.

    Picked up the v moda faze to test with the droid. Handles pause/play and call answering, no voice commands and no skip/back. The headset does have the function built in however so I am hoping this is just a software issue they will update later.

    Any news on the n1 headset?

    Found an app called droid shuffle that enables music control similar to the iphone headset. Works with just about any headset with a mic input. Completely satisfied now with my droid as an mp3 player. Give it a shot the double and triple presses need to be input a bit slowly but still an awesome app.

    Can I ask you which exact headset you are using? Also, I can't seem to get the camera button to work with this app.

    Thanks in advance!

    i'm using the vmoda faze, using the headset mic button to control music. have not tried using the camera button for anything since it turns on the screen, something that is impossible to avoid due to the way the os works i hear.

    Just got a N1 today, was curious if the neat headset would work on my droid (has all my music). The audio works fine, play/pause works good, but the fwd/back seem to be glitchy. It seems to skip tracks if I hold fwd. Maybe im not using it right?

    Hate to revive a dormant thread, but has anyone found a wired stereo headset that will allow for volume, call pickup/hangup, mic, forward/back, and play,pause?
